Evolution sending mail to outbox
I'm having an issue with Evolution where, when I send an email, evolution will place the email into my outbox. I have no idea what is causing it to do this.

I am using Evolution 2.24 on Mandriva 2009. I use Linux as my workstation at my workplace and I use Evolution was an alternative to Outlook. I would use thunderbird but, our exchange server does not support anything but exchange so I am forced to use Evolution.

Basicly what is happening is when I compose an email, evolution send it straight to my outbox. But what is strange about it is, it's not my work place email outbox, its my computers email outbox. Something doesn't seem to be configured correctly but, I have gotten evolution to work fine on openSuse before so, I don't know what the heck went wrong.

Can anyone help?

I have a stack of mail, that I wish somebody would put into my outbox too. How did you get it to do that automagically?

On one email program that I used to use, I would have to change a setting telling it to send the email right away, otherwise it would put it in the outbox and wait until it was told to send it. You can check if there is a setting to tell it when to send email, such as immediately, or at a certain time. The default may be to put it in the outbox and wait.

I don't think so but, if it is set that way as default, how do I change it?
